MADISON, WV 25130 I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we have received enough money to get the pacemaker and defibrillator for Frances. Her cardiologist is out of the country until the middle of August. She has a pre-surgery consultation with him on Aug. 17th to discuss all of the things that will be involved in the operation and what she can expect. I want to personally thank you and the paper for all your help in securing the monies for this operation. We certainly want everyone to know how much we appreciate their prayers and contributions to her medical fund. We pray God will continue to bless you and all who have helped us during this time. Yours in Christ, Ray Reynolds, Church of Christ, P.O. Box 445.
